Leader of the Movement for Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) Uchenna Madu has condemned statement by presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu, that Fulani herdsmen are criminals while IPOB members are terrorists.
Madu said Shehu’s comment had confirmed its earlier position that armed Fulani herdsmen killing Christians were being sponsored by the APC government.
He said: “Since Buhari’s media aide will eloquently and comfortably declare that Fulani herdsmen which the United Nations in their official gazette declared as the fourth world deadliest terrorist organization as an innocent group, it shows the high level of Buhari’s plan to forcefully islamize Nigeria.
“It also a proof that Hausa Fulani people are more determined in collaboration with some Judases of Biafra land to intimidate the people of Biafra with fear and jittery.
“MASSOB wish to remind the Arewa people that none of their plans or antics to subject the people of Biafra will ever work because our determination and consistency for Biafra actualization and restoration can never be shaken or derailed.
“Our resolve and consciousness for Biafra actualization and restoration is rooted firmly in the Almighty God ‘Chukwu Okike Abiama’ and our abilities of never say die.
“We still insists that IPOB is not a terrorist organization and can never be compared with world fourth deadliest terrorist organization called Fulani herdsmen”.
